The new ADATA SD810 External SSD is a serious contender for being one of today's most rugged external SSD and storage solutions. It features triple IP68 waterproof, dustproof, and MIL-STD shockproof protection - so it can withstand any environment on the planet and keep chugging along.

It's also speedy, with the USB 3.2 Gen2 x2 interface (over a Type-C connection) able to deliver read and write speeds of up to 2000 MB/s. In addition to being compatible with all PCs and modern consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, it supports Apple's new iPhone 15 smartphones to back up photos and videos while out and about.

The ADATA SD810 External SSD is constructed from aluminum alloy with a design that improves heat dissipation and stability compared to other external SSDs. It's also lightweight and smaller than a credit card.

Digging into the protective features, ADATA has put the IP68 waterproof and dustproof features of the drive to the test, with the results showing that it "completely prevents the ingress of dust and can be submerged in water more than 1 meter deep for up to 60 minutes." Impressive stuff and ADATA notes that the speed of the drive makes it the fastest in its class.

It's also impact-resistant; it can apparently be dropped from a height of 1.22 meters and remain intact. Available in Obsidian Black and Meteorite Silver, the new ADATA SD810 External SSD is available in four capacities: 500GB, 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB, and comes with a global three-year limited warranty.

Here's a look at the full specs.
